Thomas Partey, a Ghana and Arsenal midfielder, has been enstooled as the Development Chief in his hometown, Manya Krobo. Nene Sakite II, the Konor of the Manya Krobo Traditional Area, bestowed the title on the 28-year-old.
On Friday, June 3, 2022, the midfielder was given the name “Mahefalor,” which means “defender of the area,” in a short ceremony.
Partey established a foundation last year to assist in the creation of chances for the youngsters of Odumase Krobo and Ashaiman.
The Thomas Partey Foundation (TPF) was inaugurated in Somanya in June 2021, with the presence of some of the Arsenal midfielder’s friends and loved ones.
In the two areas where Partey grew up, the Foundation intends to “provide chances and hope for brilliant and less privileged kids.”
Through various programs and events, it also aims to provide critical community amenities for a variety of groups. Partey’s approach of giving back to society is this. He has established himself as one of Ghana’s most well-known footballers.
Meanwhile, due to injury, the midfielder was unable to play in Ghana’s AFCON 2023 qualifier against Madagascar on Wednesday. After suffering a thigh injury against Crystal Palace in the Premier League, Partey hasn’t played in almost three months.
The Arsenal star is still not fully fit, despite returning to training two weeks ago, and is expected to return to action in July.
Below are some pictures from the ceremony.
